The CitroŽn Xsara was an automobile made by CitroŽn from 1997 to 2004. Like its predecessor, the CitroŽn ZX, it was based around the running gear of the Peugeot 306. It came in hatchback, estate and coupť body styles.
The 1.4, 1.6, and 1.8 petrol engines were sourced from its Peugeot twin and gave reasonable refinement, performance and economy. A 1.9 turbo-diesel engine was also available. Prices were also competitive, although build quality and reliability were not of the highest standard.

CitroŽn Xsara Picasso Mini-MPV (1999-present)
The Xsara Picasso was CitroŽn's answer to the Renault Scťnic when it went on sale late in 1999. It was spacious, comfortable and practical. The rear seats could be removed to create extensive stowage space, and the interior was full of gadgets which had found their way from a large people carrier into a package the same size and price as a small family car. It soon became the bestselling MPV in France, Britain, and most of the rest of Europe.
